From the cover: “Domicile and Diaspora investigates geographies of home and identity for Anglo-Indian women in the 50 years before and after Indian Independence in 1947. Theoretically informed and substantively grounded, the book draws on interviews and focus groups with over 150 Anglo-Indians, as well as archival research. Key themes include: imaginative geographies of Britain as fatherland and India as motherland before Independence; the establishment of Anglo-Indian homelands; Anglo-Indian migration under the British Nationality Act of 1948 and the White Australia Policy; and the spatial politics of home for Anglo-Indians today in India, Britain and Australia.
As well as exploring what it means to be Anglo-Indian, Domicile and Diaspora makes a distinctive contribution to debates about home, identity, hybridity, migration and diaspora.”
